Winter is just by the corner and it’s getting colder and colder! We hate when it’s freezing outside but low temperature is a good reason to wear a cozy vintage jumper isn’t it? Here at Harper & Lewis Vintage we have a great selection of knitwear – from beautiful Christmas jumpers, through 80’s beauties in loud colours – to latest must-haves in your wardrobes – badboys from cold Scandinavia. Yes! Icelandic and Norwegian jumpers have joined our website. Let us quickly present what we’ve got for you to hunt through.
Thinking of 80s knitwear we’re all thinking of Cosby style jumpers aren’t we? Loud colours and crazy patterns – that’s what’s it all about.

The Cosby 80s sweater is a must-have piece of garment nowadays and here at Harper & Lewis Vintage we have a great selection of 80s beauties for him and her. Get your 80s sweater now and add an extravagant piece to your vintage outfit. Ladies – go for boxy shoulders to get back to Madonna’s times (if you don’t really want to look like Bill Cosby;) ). 80s sweaters look cool being worn oversized!

25th edition of Clothes Show Lives is just around the corner and Harper & Lewis Vintage is going to be there again! Vision Village, heart of the show – that’s where you’re gonna find us.
It all started in 1989 in London on the back of then famous television show which was designed to get the general public into high fashion. Since 1990 the event has been held every December at Birmingham’s NEC. This year we are all going to celebrate its 25th birthday.
The Clothes Show turned out to be very influential in the fashion’s world. Designer Christopher Kane said “The Clothes Show made it feel more relevant, and also more accessible to the working class because of all the high street stuff. It definitely made me want to go study fashion at Central St Martins.”
Young new talents have frequently been hunted at the show by established model agencies – supermodels Naomi Campbell, Jodie Karen and Caprice have all walked the Fashion Theatre Catwalk. Caprice said “I’ve never experienced anything like it – Taking to the stage in front of 6,000 screaming people. It was amazing!”
The countdown to the UK’s largest and most talked about fashion and beauty event of the year is on and Harper & Lewis Vintage is getting ready to join the event this year again. You will be able to find our massive stand which is being designed and built at the moment. We are so excited!
Join us for a five day fashion festival packed with our selection of top vintage fashion beauties. You can also enjoy hair and beauty demonstrations, non-stop catwalk shows, makeovers, experts, trend reports, celebrities and next generation talent – everything under one roof.
Show you are into fashion – be at the heart of it for five days!
There are going to be few different zones in the Clothes Show Lives and you will have enough time to pop and see all of them. They include Beauty Hall, Vision Village (this is where we are), Fashion Fix (The Bazaar) or The Style Boutique.
The shopping areas will be dedicated to emerge styles and trends.
